Welcome to Reading with Rory, the bi-weekly podcast where three friends discuss the content and legacy of each of the 300+ books on the Rory Gilmore Reading List.
A Christmas Carol - Rebroadcast
Erin, Lis, and Sara sing high praises for the Christmas traditional favorite, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Which ghost had the most impact? Which adaptation do we cherish most? Why do people like fruitcake? Answers to these vital questions and more on this rebroadcast of our 2019 discussion. Happy holidays!
The Crimson Petal and the White
Today we are discussing an ambitious period piece trying to shed new light on a familiar subject--sadly, it is not The Crown. Instead, Erin, Lis, and Sara are discussing Michel Faber's The Crimson Petal and the White. This piece of historical fiction exposed an edgier Victorian London. We have strong opinions on this book we did not want to finish reading.
Crime and Punishment
Sara, Lis, and Erin discuss the brilliant fever dream that is Crime and Punishment and laugh at Patrick Dempsey along the way. Join us as we contemplate delusions of grandeur and come up with new podcast ideas while we're at it.
Reading Honore de Balzac's Cousin Bette was another journey into a French revenge plot. Join Sara, Erin,and Lis as they discuss the best revenge tactics and dive deep into the portrayal of spinsters in literature and real life.
The Country Girls
Erin, Lis and Sara talk about universal female experiences and relationships through the lens of Edna O'Brien's The Country Girls - a controversial coming of age Irish classic. Join us for a lively discussion!
The Count of Monte Cristo
The Reading with Rory gals are joined by a special guest to discuss the excess and intrigue of The Count of Monte Cristo's revenge, debate the virtues of abridged vs unabridged, and laugh at Jim Caviezel. Join our roundtable discussion and laugh along with us.
I really enjoy this podcast. The hosts are entertaining and funny. I love how they tie it into the tv show, but you don’t have to have watching the show to listen. The format is creative and I love how they connect the book with pop culture.
Angela’s Ashes pop culture reference
Angela’s Ashes is referenced in The Office when Pam, Toby and Oscar found the Finer Things Club. :)
For lovers of books, Gilmore Girls and pop culture
This podcast is a great blend of reading, connections to Gilmore Girls and pop culture. Love this podcasts and the funny quips of the hosts as they explore Rory’s book list. Highly recommend!
